Timken Museum of Art says
"The Animal Universe within the Bruegel Dynasty"

Both Pieter Bruegel the Elder and Jan Bruegel manifested an interest in representing animals within their compositions, including political allegories, moralizing satires, and biblical subjects. In late sixteenth- and seventeenth-century Flanders, a varied representation of animal species could further reflect the learning and sophistication of the artists themselves. This talk will consider a selection of prints, drawings, and paintings in which Pieter the Elder and Jan Bruegel represented animal figures to different interpretative ends.
